The organization Brand New-U identifies networks of Identicals – people who walk like you, talk like you, and look like you, but living different and better lives. Brand New-U helps their customers in making a life upgrade: eliminating the better-life donor, and relocating their client to that brand new life.
Slater seems to have the perfect life, the perfect job and the perfect girlfriend. But when his girlfriend is abducted by Brand New-U, and a corpse left in her place, Slater is forced to become an Identical himself. As he moves through a series of parallel lives, he becomes more and more obsessed with finding his girlfriend, but what he must find in the end is himself.
